Best arena in the league for anthems, other than the Bank

We all love Lyndon and his anthems. But other than Lyndon and Scotiabank Place, in which NHL arena do the anthems (Canadian and/or American) really get you up?

For me, its gotta be Chicago. That anthem singer, that organ, the atmosphere, give me chills.

What do you think?

I can't even remember who Toronto's guy is. LOL I guess that's how forgettable he is.

I find Boston's guy annoying. He's an okay singer (not great though IMO), but that stupid little fist pump he does at the end of every American anthem just annoys the **** out of me.

Lyndon Slewidge is 2nd best actually. Lauren Hart from Philly is the hands down the best anthem singer in the NHL. If you ever listen to her do God Bless America you'd see just how talented of a singer she is. Just imagine hearing that in game 7 of a cup final from Philly would send shivers down your spine.

Speaking of Lyndon does anyone know why they changed the the Canada and American anthems before he sings? The old background music used to give me chills hearing them especially in the playoffs. I didn't like how now it's Lyndon singing with no background music.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XmDAoEuaK3U if you are confused about what I mean. You can't watch that and not get chills down your spine.

Pittsburgh guy was terrible. The uniformed guy that was singing during the Toronto/Boston series was good.

Worst: That country singer guy who sang with his daughter.

Chicago guy was good last night. Don't really like Rene Rancourt in Boston, just not that great a voice compared to Lyndon.

I wish they would just stop singing anthems before sporting events. I don't get why they do.

Here Are My Top Five

Note: This isn't soley based on the voice of the singer alone. It's the organ in the background, the atmosphere and the crowd participation


1. Philly
2. Chicago
3. Ottawa
4. Boston
5. Montreal

My favourite by far is Lauren Hart of Philly, maybe it's partly because she sings God Bless America which is different from everywhere else, but she is just a great singer who also happens to be attractive, the total package. The Kate Smith connection is also pretty cool, definetly unique.

I think Lyndon is horrible.

The girl in Philly is the best.

I always liked the way they sang the last line of the US anthem in Chicago. This guy and Lyndon are the best.

I don't think Laurent Hart is that amazing, she's good but not in the same class as Lyndon of the Chicago guy. Vancouver guy is good and Boston's Rene Rancourt is average but honestly, I like his fist pump.

Edmonton guy is horrible, Mtl and Toronto are forgettable. Actually, I think Mtl should simply put a clip of Roger Doucet on their big ass jumbo screen. It would be better than the singing toupet that's currently holding that gig.

IIRC Laurent Hart was voted as the best anthem singer in NHL history several years ago.

I hate him tbh.

I think it's the combination of his voice (which I don't really like) and his mannerisms while he's singing.

The girl who sang in Detroit in game 6 was unreal. I'm not sure if she's a regular or just a one time thing. She might've even been a famous artist, I didn't catch who it was, though.

I will never forget the game my husband took me to at the United Center. The anthem was amazing.
